Record revenues for Abu Dhabi Duty Free in 2013


February 12, 2014 | By RetailME Bureau

Abu Dhabi Duty Free revenues in 2013 reached record levels touching $248 million. The performance represented an increase of 13% compared to 2012, according to Abu Dhabi Airports. The successful year ended on a high note when December proved to be the busiest month of the calendar year and sales figures reached $25 million at Abu Dhabi International Airport, with the most popular purchases made by air travellers being beauty products, fragrances, watches, gold and diamonds.

“The level of commercial performance in Abu Dhabi Duty Free last year and the 13% rise in revenue were extremely positive results for our company. Abu Dhabi Duty Free launched a new brand identity in October with a new logo to reflect the iconic architectural design of the new Midfield Terminal Building, which will open for passengers in 2017. The commercial retail area in the new terminal will be spread across 301389 sqft,” says Mohammed Al Bulooki, chief commercial officer of Abu Dhabi Airports.

He adds, “Abu Dhabi Duty Free has expansion plans ahead of the new terminal building scheduled to open in 2017, with the introduction of new outlets to continuously improve the shopping experience for passengers passing through Abu Dhabi International Airport.”
